I'm in Austin, TX, looking for a 2009 Honda Fit. There's a wait for most configurations at every dealership. The build and color I want will come in about 3 weeks, and I put a deposit to reserve it at one dealership.
So far it seems nobody will consider taking less than MSRP. Edmunds shows invoice as $600 less, but they're "What other people are paying" number is actually $500 more than MSRP.
How can I negotiate this? What leverage do I have, because it feels like I have none. Have I given anything up by putting down the deposit (it is supposed to be refundable)? Any personal stories about buying this car?
